If you're in Seattle, visiting, or just a pacific northwesterner by association, SMWK is still going strong. We have started a weekly Saturday morning meetup at Kaladi Brothers Coffee on Capitol Hill, and we are still meeting in the evenings on 2nd and 4th Thursdays.
To check our calendar, or just to keep up with your Seattle knitting friends, join our Facebook and Meetup groups.
Last night while watching TV I started the Vertex Cowl with the Stonehenge Crazy I purchased during our trip to Yale to visit our son. It was a free pattern that came with the yarn. It is a simple chevron stitch pattern. It was purchased at a great shop call Knit New Haven. Check it out if you're every in the area. Hope everyone is having a great weekend. JRob
Well Lobsters in the Cathedral is done. It was fun designing and knitting my first sweater not from a pattern. I am really pleased with the fit and the way it turned out. Hope you all have a great weekend and find a little time to knit. Regards to all my knitting brothers on this beautiful autumn day., JRob.
Here's a picture of some more socks I made. I love them. They're so comfortable and great for long walks. They feel like all-around foot cushions!
A round the first of this year I found out that my nephew and his wife were expecting their second child. At that point I started to look at something to knit for the baby. Before I got started we heard that the ultrasound said that it ws going to be a girl.
I am looking at producing an online knitting course. First, for beginners, but if that is successful, I could do some more advanced ones later. Looking for feedback on my list of topics for each segment. What do you think of this?
"What is Knitting?
"The Knit Stitch"
"The Purl Stitch"
Ten week course
Sorry not to have posted for a while. I'm still here and I'm still knitting - and at last have started Dad's Christmas Cardigan before december so there is a chance it will get finished.
Just came across this article and though you might like to see it:

This hat took me forever since I was working on it as we listed and sold our home in Burbank and moved to San Luis Obispo. I used double pointed needles and Mirasol Tupa 50/50 merino/silk. Love the yarn. It's a Woolly Wormhead pattern called Castiel. I had to rescue the project from catastrophic stitch droppage a couple times.
